Pick Up Artists
« on: April 25, 2016, 02:31:20 PM »
What do you guys think of pick up artists?

Apparently people pay a lot of money to learn how to get girls... they run seminars. Here is one of their head honchos:



He looks like a dweeb... even worse, he calls himself "mystery" lol. Guys are paying that guy thousands of dollars to learn from him... I think I should start a new business. The thing I don't get is why don't these guys just pay prostitutes? It's cheaper and guaranteed...

I looked into this forum:

www.pick-up-artist-forum.com

I wanted to find some of their methods. I don't think this shit would work on any girl... correct me if I'm wrong gals. Here's one of their pitches:

Me: Hey, I saw you from afar and I thought you are really cute (Direct Opener)
Her: Oh thanks, that's so sweet of you!
Me: So what sorts of trouble are you up to today?
Her: Oh nothing, just class and work afterwards
Me: No, I got a better idea. We're gonna go rob a bank (playful role playing).
Her: Ha, what?!
Me: No, I'm DEAD SERIOUS. But when we rob the bank, you have to distract them while I break in with a mask on because I'm too hot and they'll recognize my face right away-
her: Wait, what? what about me?
me: oh you'll be fine, you're hot, but not as hot as me so they won't remember who you are (playful)
her: OHHH it's like that?!
me: HEY LISTEN! *I softly take her hand* If I get caught, this whole operation goes to shit! But if it works, we'll get rich and live a happily ever after fairy tale

That shit was horrible... anyone paid to go to pick up school before?

That little "scenario" you posted is fairly representative of how this pick-up shit is formulated

Correct me if I'm wrong, but these guys believe that insulting women indirectly, or flat out directly
is in some way going to improve their chances of ever talking to this person again?

There was a kid in high school who had a book written by that guy (surprise, we all hated this kid)
Which of course was given to him by his mom (she also wrote him a note in the front)
He was always talking about "back-handed compliments" and some other stupid shit


I do feel sorry for some of these guys
I guess being themselves is either not going to attract any women, or "themselves" is a paranoid/anxious/depressive wreck
who is totally incapable of forming any kind of meaningful or intimate relationships

I mean, yes, I totally fall into that second group of people
but I'm not going to insult and belittle a woman in an attempt to basically trick her into thinking I'm some douchebag named mystery
As I grew up, I opened my eyes and saw the real world, and I began to laugh, and I haven't stopped since

I second the above post. Being yourself is and should be enough. Not some bullshit dimestore psychology. Maybe it works on insecure women without a solid self esteem, but ot most likely would not work on someone worth knowing. Its transparent and stupid.

Attraction all comes down to looks and how much you wanna bet that pick up artist bullshit does not work when tbe girl is way more attractive then the pick up artist.

I think that most of the guys who buy into this are just insecure, or socially awkward.  I was a shy kid, but grew out of it.  Apparently if you do enough drugs you don't give as much of a shit.  Who knew?


I love Ethan, and the guy he was making fun of here scares the everliving crap out of me.  Among his techniques are hugging a random girl, while counting 10 Mississippi.  Out loud.  Cruising teenagers while pretending to be a teenage rock star.  Hiring prostitutes to star in his pickup videos.  I mean, prostitutes are all good and fine, but I wouldn't hire one to make a YouTube video with me.

You can go pretty far down the road rage, rape dungeon rabbit hole with this good looking loser guy.

I signed up for a couple "adult" dating sites in the past, so my name is on mailing lists for this shit. I have looked at their pitch videos before, more than a couple, and it's always, "a renegade team of scientists working for NASA and the CIA developed this system of mind control so powerful that there are women's groups out there trying right not to have this video taken down. We don't know if this is going to be available tomorrow so get it while it's hot!"

They claim to have a "secret formula" of questions you can ask any woman, anytime, and it will immediately "make her slide her pussy onto your cock." And it works even if they don't want it to. Sometimes they claim to have like three WORDS to say to get ANY woman desperate to fuck you instantly. I mean it's totally un-fuckin-believable the claims these losers make.

And it's always like "I used to charge men $10,000 to learn these secret mind control techniques, but you can get it now, for the low low price of $69.99, and get laid TONIGHT!"

Their "clients" must be both:

a. super insecure and socially inept to a fault (who the hell absolutely cannot get a woman to talk to them?)
b. dumb as fucking shit

to buy into this crap.

But they seem to be making plenty money with these "pickup systems." There are many out there these days, and it's a growth industry. LADIES LOOK OUT! You might find yourself getting it doggy style from some acne-ridden obese video game addict if you don't watch out.

The back-handed compliment is called a "neg." This guy had a show on MTV or VH1 a while back and according to their "hidden camera footage" it worked, or at least got girls to react in a positive way (giggles, not slapping the guy, etc). But that was basically reality TV and we all know how real that is.

I'd chalk the positive reactions from women up to girls learning early that even if a guy is a creep you hafta be nice or face the consequences.

There is a LOT of crossover between the PUA set and MRA dudes. Insecurity is barely the half of it. I'd safely bet a lot of them downright hate women.

Hey, what are these "adult" dating sites? You mean like FarmersOnly? It's not like kids are allowed to operate that machinery after all.

man I recall seeing this show on vh1. the vocabulary alone was worth watching it for.

grab your wingman, have him put on a cowboy hat and sunglasses, and open a 3 set with some hotties. throw out some negs, build kino, and close the set by bouncing with the hotties to a secondary location.

this was all around the time the book The Game by Strauss came out, explaining the secrets to getting mad amounts of babes while wearing a fedora

I knew someone that carried around The Game in highschool. honestly these dudes have my sympathy at the end of the day. @Z is right, they just want to be liked. I just think some ativan would negate this entire scenario overnight.

edit OH GOD zoops those ads are amazing. bar none, the best ones are on the porn sites.

Are YOU on that Farmers Only site too? I grow poppies, so...

- What's MRA and PUA?

You're right about these guys basically hating women. These pickup "formulas" basically come from an assumption that all women will react exactly the same to a series of rehearsed lines. Because they don't have any soul right? They are brainless vagina life-support systems right?

EDIT: "Some Ativan" is the only time I ever got slapped by a woman, getting fresh with her, asking her if she wanted to get a room and go upstairs, because, oh, "I have some rubbers too, so don't worry." NEVER AGAIN!

PUA are pickup artists and MRA are Men's Rights Activists. 

Here's a PUA that made his mark in SF a little while ago:

http://jezebel.com/5981578/angry-texts-from-the-rape-van-pick-up-artist

Also, the kid who wrote a 100+ page woman-hating manifesto and committed a mass shooting near UC Santa Barbara was a PUA in training.
